6:14 pm
came to be named. >> the enterprise will soon be making its home at the intrepid sea, air and space museum, on manhattan's west side. by the way, new york, we got it first, by the way. >> yes, we did. i couldn't see spock. i couldn't see him close, if his ears were still pointy. still to come on wjz eyewitness news. cash controversy. george zimmerman has more money than he let on. will this affect his bail status? i'm mike schuh, in hale thorpe. you're looking at a hole, made by a rock, thrown through a window of this mosque. police are now looking at this as a possible hate crime. the story next. it's great. bright. it's very bright. i'm jessica kartalija, at sagamore farms. we talk to kevin plank about the future of horse racing in maryland. ,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,
